-- the manufacturing jobs that were in america and were moved to countries like india and china. i think that they are experiencing an industrial revolution much like what we saw in the 20th-century. i think that they are developing a middle-class while we are losing our middleclass. i also think that for an economy to do well, there has to be a strong middle-class. that is indicative when you look at consumer spending indexes. we just don't have the money. we don't have the dollars because we don't have manufacturing jobs that developed are middle-class. guest: that is exactly right. that is the essence of the book, which is that china and india have replicated the success in developing this industrialized economy. by opening of their labor force to more exploitation, it does speak to the myth of gdp. you have a growth but poverty grows at the same time. the loss of manufacturing jobs is really such a central element to both this recession and the declining living standards in terms of the exploitation of people, but declining marriage rates, unraveling of our society and many other cou

wonder because they are on the other side of pakistan. it would be a good strategic movement if india made the move towards bin laden, if he is still alive. another question, perhaps we are already monitoring bin laden? perhaps our intelligence has him on the phone all the time? could that be possible? guest: i wish it were, but it would speak to some kind of nefarious plot. if he were on the phone and we have not killed him. if we are listening to him on the phone we can geo-locate him and he would be yesterday's news. so, i seriously doubt we're listening to him. secondly, part of the problem we have in afghanistan is we have already allowed a large indian presence, both economically, and they are doing a lot of construction with people dressed as civilians but who are really military engineers. people in the u.s. do not realize the degree of paranoia between two nuclear-armed countries, pakistan and india. to allow an indian military forces into pakistan would turn the pakistan knees entirely away from us. -- the pakistanis away from us. it is interesting as an idea, but in the lon

, of the scope of atrocities that were going on india down. the other thing that you, after john kerry gave his testimony to the senate in 1971, remember, vietnam veterans against the war. after his testimony, the nixon administration, we now know, worked closely with another veterans group that eventually came the veterans, that's kind of the ring, the senate, that worked closely with them to put out a different story to the public. that these guys were liars and fabricators, and in fact, the army records don't show that they were liars. >> thank you. >> incidentally, you mentioned john kerry, you know as probably most of you recall in 2004, he was attacked by the swift boaters when he was running for president for his testimony in 1971, war crimes were a common occurrence in the non. and it was an effective attack that helped defeat him. but one of the people, one of the officers was part of a small group that collected these records in the pentagon is now a retired general, and a vocal opponent to the iraq war. in 2040 contacted the kerry campaign three times. he wanted to tell them that the
or india or accepted today, de facto in the nuclear weapons. but the north korean case so different from india or pakistan. this is a smaller -- a small and opaque country, a record of proliferating bad things, whether that's ballistic missiles or nuclear technology. so there's no way that the united states or the world can accept this country as a nike lar weapon state. >> vick to cha, thank you so much for joining us. kiran? oh. >> live out to rob marciano. he's hanging out somewhere on friday. where is he today? he's at the world's largest yardsale. that's right, he's hunting for bargains this morning. there he is. >> what is that? it's some kind of pottery. >> vase or -- >> who knows what he's going to find. >> hello! >> he's going to join us to tell us how they pulled this thing off. >> that looks fantastic. . unlock an outdoor dreamland for your indoor cat. exciting flavor combinations, plus a touch of garden greens make it irresistible. indoor delights. feed the senses. it's the chevy open house. and now, with the cash for clunkers program, a great deal gets even better. let us re

cheaper in places like china, mexico and india than here in the united states. are we seeing a fundamental shift in the american economy and the american job market? >> americans have lost so much wealth. we've lost $14 trillion of household wealth. one of the big things are we going to be more frugal going forward much like peep out of the depression. that's one question of the other question is what kind of jobs will come back. there's a real question whether the standard of living here is going to drop because a lot of the jobs that have been created they are not paying as much as they did in the past. >> a couple more important issues we want to tackle, extension of unemployment benefits, will middle class be taxed to pay for everything we spend money on. more after the break, stay with us. 16 minutes after the hour. busis but when i walked in here i wasn't sure what i needed. i'm not sure what i need. tom showed me how to use mifi to get my whole team working online, on location. i was like, "woah". woah ! only verizon wireless has small business specialists in every store to help you
in india. we think by using a fairly systemic framework, we can put in a system where we can change the economics so that we can make it in our best interest and our suppliers best interest to understand that it is in their best interest to keep these systems truly supplied in a secure fashion, rather than allow them to be counterfeited. one thing i would say in addition to this is that we try to take a risk management approach to this. while we are worried about the supply chain, this is a problem that is generally not a big problem for industry. the reason is, it is usually easier and less costly if you are going to attack bank of america to attack it for software of one of these traditional hacks. is much harder to do it through the supply chain attack by putting something in the computer. however, from the government's perspective, this is an extremely serious problem, because if a weapons system could be infected through a manufactured attack, you cannot detect it. you do not get rid of it when the software is there, and it is absolutely possible to put in a back door or troja
scene? >> first of all, if we want to save the american manufacturing, to compete with china and india, the government needs to help manufacturing, not hammer them. this california metals co. is a good example of what has been happening. their staff is down about half. energy costs are so expensive, they start running this furnace at 9:00 at night. a report coming from the milken institute saying california has lost more than 15,000 manufacturing jobs for the last six years. why? high taxes, heavy regulation, and a hostile legislator. basically, they take scrap copper and brass here, and turn it into battle to sell to other companies. a lot of the manufacturing has been producing some bad odors down the street, so now they are asking them to retrofit some of these jobs. jane: who was your favorite character on gilligan's island? i believe you are a marianne guy. she gave her fans a chance to own television history. she auctioned off a few items from her home. why did she think that the show made such an impact on american pop culture? >> there was no time. everybody wanted to be on a i
%. they could go to india or china and have lower wages that have lower cost. what is going to keep them? [applause] >> you have raised two very important questions. on cap and trade, the house has passed a bill which i agree with you has a lot of problems. we have not gotten a bill in the senate. we understand the concerns to have race. we will take them up and see to it that we do not have the consequences of exporting jobs or imposing a great tax. raised the question of employee's choice. that bill is in the process of being negotiated. there will not be a time line which will be so fast that the people will not have an opportunity to understand what the issue is. you have to maintain a secret ballot, which you agree with. we are trying to work through arbitration. we're very high-minded the concern to have raised. no. 24. yes, sir? >> in 1997, i was diagnosed with a thyroid condition that put me in the hospital in a coma. i need to thank all the taxpayers for paying for four years of hospitalization for me because i did not have a plan by could afford at the time. i spent a lot of ti

. there are international negotiations. i do not know how to get china and india to come along. if they will go along with it and we will not lose all manufacturers to china -- you understand china is in number one emitter of pollution, not the united states. they do not want to do it. india is even more adamant about doing it. then we lose their jobs. we need to get china under the umbrella and it takes a 2/3 vote in the senate to get it done. i think there is some protection for our consumers and interesindustry. >> glad to see you again today. i am a veteran. i am very proud to be a veteran.

to the afghan state. they see the regime as being overly friendly towards india, so they are sheltering these as an asset on behalf of pakistan. it will be difficult to be successful meaningfully in afghanistan as long as group like this network and the taliban continue to be harbored without interference on the pakistani side of the border. host: this morning this writer writes the article saying "american officials have grown increasingly disenchanted with karzai's leadership of the past five years. " guest: yes, it is certainly cause for concern. one of the things we realized this summer is that governments, the ability to govern, or degree to which is correct, or taking predatory actions -- this is a winner of this position. will not fall to the network or the taliban anytime soon, but we have been discharged and largely by the way, some of the behavior that thoughkarzai government has engaged -- that the karzai has engaged in of the last few years. the corruption. everywhere i went this past summer, every direction -- all over afghanistan, each identified government corruption. we
